3.0 out of 5 stars Good Conditioner, February 23, 2010
By C. Sheffield - See all my reviews
I just used the Hair Rules No Suds Shampoo and Quench Ultra Rich Conditioner for the 1st time yesterday. I have curly/kinky thick shoulder length hair. I am about 10 months into transitioning from a relaxer back to my naturally curly hair. I've read a lot of books on natural hair care, as well as read the reviews of Hair Rules Products online and watched some of the videos on YouTube, and figured I give Hair Rules a try. I purchased the Hair Rules Travel pack (which comes with 5 of the products to try, I wanted to try the whole line to see its effect on my hair).
I put the conditioner on and sat under a bonnet type hair dryer for 20 minutes (as I wanted a good deep condition). The product has a nice fragrance, not too strong or overpowering, but clean and subtle. Since I have curly/kinky thick hair, my hair craves and needs lots of moisture. So the conditioners I use have to be extra nourishing and rich. I didn't feel like this was as rich of a conditioner as I need. The substance could have been a little more substantial and creamy. Generally when I put conditioner on my hair, and sit under the dryer (with a plastic cap), the conditioner heats up nicely, and it still feels very rich and thick when you're ready to wash it out. However, in my experience with the Hair Rules Quench conditioner, after I came from under the dry, the conditioner seemed to have disappeared, and my hair seemed to be starting to dry out.
After using both the shampoo and conditioner, my hair was clean, soft and manageable. Overall I like this product and may purchase it again, as it seems to work good on my hair, but I will try some other brands first (like Miss Jessie's) before purchasing. I may even go to the Hair Rules salon in The City, to experience their hair care products and expertise first hand (though this is a pricey option).
